Alan’s Story

Alan struggled from considerable back pain caused by a number of incidents over the course of a year.

The first, which resulted in two collapsed vertebrae, was caused by tripping over an extension cord. After having his vertebrae repaired at the Indiana Back Pain Center, Alan returned to his exercise routine.

The second injury occurred when he fell at an exercise class and sustained a cracked vertebrae. He knew exactly who to turn to – Dr. Yedlicka, the doctor at the Indiana Back Pain Center, who had treated him so successfully after his first injury. That would not be the last time Alan would turn to Dr. Yedlicka.

In the fall of 2013, on a trip to Greece, Alan was lifting some bags when he felt a sharp pain in his back. Once again he turned to his doctor at the Indiana Back Pain center – and, once again, he was successfully treated.

Dr. Yedlicka performed kyphoplasty – a minimally invasive non-surgical outpatient treatment that creates space between collapsed vertebrae.

Within days of his treatments his back pain was virtually eliminated and he was able to walk without the considerable pain he had been suffering. The treatment has kept Alan active and mobile. Most importantly, he is sleeping better and enjoying his friends and family without the back pain that kept him from living his life to the fullest.

“I was extremely impressed with the professionalism and friendliness at the center,” he said. “The staff was right there with me from the beginning, guiding me through the process, which made me a lot less anxious. I wasn’t apprehensive because I trusted them. The transformation has been amazing.”
